PREFATORY NOTE 

The following schedules were made in 1904 by Mr. S. C. Stuntz, 
under the direction of Mr. Martel, Chief Classifier. The arrange- 
ment of material relating to navies follows in general the classifi- 
cation of Military Science which is based upon the "Classification 
and Index" of the Military Information Division of the Adjutant- 
General's Office, U. S. War Department. In the arrangement of 
sailing directions and similar lists in VK, the publications of the 
British Hydrographic Office were followed in their general order 
as furnishing the most complete series available for a systematic list. 

Since 1905 the classification of this subject has been in charge 
of the undersigned and numerous changes have been made. As the 
material has not yet been recataloged the schedules are still to 
be considered as provisional.

Names of countries are not included in this index except in the case of pilot guides, 
tide tables, and a few headings under United States and Great Britain. Pilot guides 
and tide tables are made an exception on account of the fact that their primary arrange- 
ment in the schedules is by oceans, seas, etc., and only secondarily by country. In 
other cases the country subdivisions of any given subject may be readily found by 
referring to the scheme itself.
